Problem: I can't seem to keep Iris V1 motion sensors working.
Most of my stuff is ZWave, but I have a few devices on Zigbee. Unfortunately I have about zero which are quality, modern, non-proprietary devices.
I have two ancient GE Link bulbs which have been fine for a long time, despite their many flaws. This has been my entire zigbee mesh for 6 or 7 years.
I added a Sage Doorbell sensor, which has been and continues to be flawless.
I recently bought a lot of Iris V1 motion sensors for cheap on Ebay. I added four of them to my network and they worked great. When I added the rest of them, all but one stopped working.
I believed it to be a repeater problem because I have the HE in the basement and most of the rest of the devices. I was thinking I'd get a couple Ikea repeaters until I found the thread about building repeaters out of XBee devices. I have a couple of
XBee Series 2B Proand a couple
XBee Series 2 Prositting around from a past life, so I configured the two
2B Pros. One for repeating and one for scanning and graphing (read: connected to my computer). This is great, by the way, and I feel like it makes use of a bunch of hardware I have in my garage just sitting around.
The doorbell and the light bulbs show up, and I was able to get the mesh to re-fold using the XBee as a repeater without issue. But I can't get the Iris V1 Motion Sensors to show up at all, and I can't get the devices show any activity in HE either. All but one of the sensors have been inactive for over 3 days, some of them have never checked in at all since pairing.
I just pulled the GE Link bulbs and have noticed no difference as well.
Thanks for looking! I appreciate any advice.
